The Bird and the Fortune” is a collection of poems by Davood Lotfollah.  The poems being recited particularly for teenagers include a variety of modern themes especially appealing to teenagers.  In its first poem “The Bird and the Fortune“, a bird’s life has been described in a cage.  It has been trained to pick one of the fortune cards every time it is ordered to and hand it to the passengers who are going to buy a fortune card from its owner.  The fortune card mysteriously reveals the passengers’ fortune, either good or evil.  Yet the poet is more concerned with the bird’s fortune itself.
